Sure Shot Highlights
When you only have one shot, make it a Sure Shot.
Performing a site survey will greatly enhance your chances for a successful event. Determining parking, power, cable runs and line of site issues all play a factor in doing a remote broadcast. 30 Days prior to the event is advisable.
Every show has its own unique requirements. Choosing the proper production truck to meet your production and budgeting needs is a great start to a successful event.
If budgets permit a set day, this greatly enhances your chances for a seamless broadcast. The extra day allows time for the travel delays and technical issues that can and do happen when doing a remote broadcast.
If a set day is not possible, it is important to allow ample time prior to your event to complete set up and fax the mobile production unit a minimum of 2 hours before the start of the event. Set, shoot and strike shows can incur overtime charges that occur after industry standard 10 hours on site for the production crew.
Selecting the crew for your event can and will have a direct impact on the quality of your production. With all the new HD equipment in the market place, be sure that the crew you hire is experienced with equipment on the mobile unit of choice.
If satellite transmission service is required for your event, it is vitally important to select a satellite that you can clearly see with no obstructions. Just as important, is to verify with your downlink site or sites that they can see the satellite as well.
The more information you can put on paper and distribute to your on-site personnel prior to your event the better. Proper, prior planning prevents many of the problems that can arise during the course of a live broadcast.
After completing a successful broadcast, calling in a good night to your uplink truck and satellite carrier ensures that you will not incur overrun charges that may not be necessary.
